In the weeks since Donald Trump has become the president, the grudge between the White House and the news media has intensified. After a recent speech and several new tweets, it appears that Trump is not done with his attack on the press, while making sure to target the New York Times.

Trump on the media

Donald Trump and his problems with the mainstream media started from the very beginning. After the billionaire real estate mogul first announced his candidacy for president, he was quickly criticized by the media for referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "murderers" and "rapists." For the rest of his campaign, the press became one of his top targets, often referring to the reporters and journalists as "terrible" and "dishonest" people.

Despite many of his claims being fact-checked and debunked, Trump was able to pull off the upset over Hillary Clinton, and is now the 45th President of the United States. As seen on Twitter and reported by CNBC on February 6, Trump is only increasing his attack on the media.

In his most recent rant on social media, Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter, this time targeting the New York Times. "The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me," Trump wrote on Monday afternoon, before adding, "They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!" The president's comments come just hours after he went on another Twitter tirade, targeting CNN, ABC, and NBC for promoting negative polls, which he refers to as "fake news."

Trump's claim

While speaking at the MacDill Air Force Base in Florida on Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump went even further in his criticism of the media.

This time, the billionaire real estate mogul accused the press of apparently covering up terrorists attack in Europe.

It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported," Trump said. "In many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it," he continued, before noting, "They have their reasons and you understand that." If Trump's comments are any inclination for how the White House treats the press in the future, it doesn't look like common-ground will be found anytime soon.
